I’d like to introduce you to two new arrivals. Both of these boys only very recently arrived at An Orphan’s Wish.
This first little guy is 5 years old. His special need isn’t clubfoot, but he will be staying in the Clubfoot Unit while he receives treatment. He has a condition which affects his hands, elbows and shoulders called arthrogryposis (or AMC).
It is very difficult for him to eat and drink, which we believe has caused him to be very small for his age. To eat, he has to stand up, dig his spoon into his bowl, then sit down, lean in and try his best to the food in his mouth.
His treatment will include having his hands casted to get them into a more functional position, which we expect will greatly improve this sweet boy’s quality of life.
If you are this little guy’s first sponsor, you’ll get the opportunity to choose his ‘American’ name. And you’ll have the privilege of knowing you made a difference in the life of a child.
Next I’d like to introduce you to another sweet little dude.
He is 8 months old. He arrived at the Special Care Unit last Friday after enduring more than any little one should. He was born with anal atresia and has received corrective surgery, but has had many setbacks since then.
Now he just needs time to recover, get lots and lots of TLC, and catch up on all the things he’s missed. Which he’ll most definitely get to do under the loving watch of the caregivers at An Orphan’s Wish.
If you’re the first to sponsor this little guy’s care at An Orphan’s Wish Special Care Unit, you’ll also get the opportunity to choose his ‘American’ name.
If you’re interested in sponsoring either of these little guys, follow the directions below. If you have any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once your sponsorship has been set up, we’ll contact you to share a bit more about your sponsored child. And if you are either of these boys’ first sponsor, we’ll let you know that as well, so you can select his new American name**.
I had the chance to name and sponsor a little one at An Orphan’s Wish, and I can tell you first hand, it’s an incredibly special opportunity.
To sponsor either of these little boys, click here.
Type in “$35” and click “ongoing gift”
Then choose “Club Foot Unit Child” (to sponsor the 5 year old boy) or “Special Care Unit Child” (to sponsor the 8 month old boy) to designate the specific fund
Add “for the new little boy” in the “special note” section
Then fill out the remainder of the form to complete your sponsorship.
And we’ll do the rest!
P.S. If you sponsor a child through An Orphan’s Wish and would like to display a button on your blog with their picture on it, just email me and I’ll send you one! We’d be grateful to have you show your support 🙂
**The only stipulation in choosing your sponsored child’s name is that it cannot currently belong to a child at An Orphan’s Wish. The children are given ‘American’ names to protect their privacy. To meet all the kiddos, visit here.
